) >> our speaker this morning, the former secretary of defense william perry, i first met when he was the deputy secretary of defense, and he and mrs. perry came to korea where i was the c5j5 and i was assigned to escort them around. and i had a lot of those kinds of duties while i was assigned to korea. but it was the most pleasant experience i had and i say that honestly, to get to know these two people. and he then became our secretary of defense. and many of us that have served thought that he was one of the best secretary of defenses we've ever had. he's currently a senior fellow at the hoover institute and a freeman foley institute of international studies. he is the michael and barbara bavarian professor at stanford university and serves as co-director of the nuclear risk reduction initiative and preventive defense project. please help me welcome our speaker this morning, former secretary of defense william perry. (applause) >> what a pleasure it is to be aboard this symbol of america's millery power, the uss macon island. what a pleasure it is to be among the men and women
that it's a hard job every day of the week. >> defense secretary chuck hagel and joint chiefs of staff's general martin dempsey testified before the senate armed services committee on the defense department 2014 budget request. the pentagon budget request includes almost $527 billion in discretionary spending nearly 1% decrease from 2013. this is three hours and 45 minutes. >> good morning everybody. chuck hagel, general martin dempsey the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, accompanied by the department's comptroller undersecretary bob hailed for her hearing on department of defense fiscal year 2014 budget request and the posture of the u.s. armed forces we welcome secretary hagel on his first appearance as secretary of defense before this committee. we thank all of our witnesses for their service to our nation and to the soldiers sailors airmen and marines at home and in harm's way. we could never say that enough. your testimony today is a key component of the committees review of the fy2014 budget request for the department of defense. this year's request includes $526.6 billion
to a little bit different level. the department of defense is very comprehensively represented here at fleet week this year, more so than ever before. we have a representative from the assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and american security affairs in the audience and they were here in august when we did our exercise with the city. fema is well represented and we have several defense coordinating officers here over the past couple of days. certainly the california national guard is represented heavily here. obviously they are going to be the first guys to respond to a disaster and they have several interesting roles not only from a state perspective but as they get federalized or with the dual status commander managing federal response and federal authorities of military authorities flowing in. and most significantly, we're represented today with the commander of northern command, general jackoby. as you know, defense report to civil authorities is not a primary mission area for the department of defense. we have codified it in policy over the years and certainly things
needs to be changed if at all? >> do you mean the whole defense? >> when it comes to north korea. i think you have to be very careful that when you say something you do not back away from it. i think we have shown a propensity to do that, and not just this administration but other administrations. worldappens around the watches us. they see as pulling back our defense spending. ony see as pulling back commitments, i will not as a commitment. we have not done that yet. we have pulled back. we had a big fight now could 2009 over missile defense. we lost that to the administration. they cut missile defense. now with korea's latest action, they released that. i was happy to see that. i thought we should have been moving forward back them could 2009. one of the things that bothers me is that the president has more knowledge than any of us. knows what a crucial stage we are in, not just korea. that is the one on the front page, but iran has not stopped. and they keep moving. the whole middle east. china is increasing their defense spending. syria. these are things that are happening all a
additional missile defense systems were needed to be deployed for the protection of the united states, whether domestically or abroad, would the russian government be consulted or informed before that decision was made? >> well, first, i can't answer for the president. that would be a decision for the president to make. i suspect have to reinvolve around treaty obligations, and we have before with other issues might be. >> in mah, the government requested meetings to take ac regularly to discuss the european missile shield. any talks to take play, and if there are plans for such talks, do they include any nato allies as part of the discussions? >> again, senator, i don't know about those talks that would be in purview of the secretary of state in the white house. i have not been consulted on any talks or possibility of what you're talking about. >> okay. you're not certain of whether there have been talks, but to your knowledge, there have not? n't know of any conversations of what you suggested on talks. >> i see time expired, thank you very much, and thank you, mr. chairman. >> than
, what do you think needs to be changed? in general. >> you mean their whole defense status? >> when it comes to north korea. >> well, i think you have to be very careful that when you say something, you don't back away from it. and i think we have shown a propensity to do that. as you said, not just this administration, other administrations have done that. and what happens around the world, these -- everybody watches us. they see us going back -- pulling back our defense spending, they see us pulling back on commitment. i won't say commitment. we haven't done that yet that i'm aware of. but we've pulled back. we had a big fight in '09 over missile defense. and we lost that fight. the administration cut missile defense. now with korea's latest a. they've reversed that. secretary hagel said no, we are going to move forward and put those missiles in the silos in alaska. i was happy to see that. i think we should have been moving forward on that back in 2009. one of the things that bothers me about all this is the president has more knowledge than any of us. and i think he knows what a
in this race and our thoughts are with all of them today. the department of defense is prepared to respond quickly to any response for additional support from domestic law enforcement agencies. i will continue to consult closely with d.o.d. senior leaders on how we can best support the government's response and investigation. and chairman dempsey may have additional comments regarding this event as well. mr. chairman, i will now turn to my opening statement for this hearing. this year's 2014 budget request for the department of defense is -- as congressman lowey noted, a budget that was put together over many months. an enterprise as large as the department of defense, $600 billion is not collaborated with or on or numbers or budgets instructed in a manner of two or three months. and as we proceed in this hearing this morning, mr. chairman, we will get into some of the specifics of the budget and why some of the decisions were made on the basis of what the numbers will reveal and our responsibilities. allow me to express my appreciation to this subcommittee for its continued support of our
the department of defense but the entire government some to the house some idea month-to-month how much money they will have. your ability to plan is gone. we hope we will fix sequestration before it hits, we don't. now we're here in april wondering if it's going to continue into 2014. i don't think it's any one party is pulte. but all threelt, need to come together and recognize absented decision we're having a devastating impact on many parts of our government but certainly our national security which is supposed to be paramount. you cannot plan strategy when you do not know how much money will have month-to-month. i applaud the chairman for urging the reconciliation to come together and i look forward to finding a solution to that. i look forward to hearing from the witnesses. thus challenging as all of this is, we will deal with it. we will make the decisions. we have certainly faced tougher times in the past and have come through it. it is a challenge that we will meet. i look for to hearing from witnesses today. thank you, mr. chair. >> mr. secretary. >> chairman, ranking member smith,
of missil defense approach that i just identified one as the amount and the phased adaptive approach and alaska both pieces do you approve both parts? >> i do. >> on the brac issue, as i understanding your testimony and your budget, mr. secretary, there is a short-term cost that there was an additional brac improvements, but that cost is not in the 2014 budget request. you put it in the 2015 budgeta >> the money is in 2016, it is $2.4 million of additional funds. previous rounds you testified saved, i believe, $12 billion annually. was that the savings that you say exist from the created from the last ground? from all the previous rounds. if you would like more detail maybe you could bring it out. i think you on the 75th barack you might remember you were in the the senate at the time in 2005. you might remember that i kind of lead the opposition of that round unsuccessfully. my senior senator was on the other side. yorm how you voted on that. we'll get in to that. >> by support. >> okay. okay. >> yeah i came with the first it was bringing down our infrastructure to an artificially l
150 are press conference on missile defense, dr. jim miller stated "at that time, the threat was uncertain. we didn't know we would see today what we are now." it sounds like we were waiting on the north koreans to succeed in developing missile to attack the united states before we need to improve our own missile defenses. i have to ask the hard question, is this going to be the posture of the obama administration in dealing with evolving iranian's program. do we need to wait for success or iranians before we deploy additional capability? are we going to try to meet the threats before they are deployed? >> congressman, thank you. let me begin with this. you know what the administration's policy is on iran. president obama preventing iran from developing a nuclear weapon. >> i don't think iranians are as clear as the president would like them to be. >> there's a lot of things we would like the iranians to be clear on. but i think the president has been clear on this, our allies have been clear on this, we have, as you know, many channels 5 king on this diplomatic p- plus 1 th

no longer necessary for national defense. so, that strategic entrance to this harbor was the last land that our troops and sailors and marines and soldiers would see if they departed for the pacific theater in world war ii and korea and vietnam, and also the first thing they would see upon returning back to the bay area. so, between the presidio and the head lands, we now have wonderful park lands that have been converted. we call it converting from post to park. repurposing those lands from national defense to environmental defense. and i believe it is probably the most accessful base conversion in the united states. if you haven't been to the presidio, i think you should try and make that. if you're from out of town, it's a spectacular transition there. so, these golden gate national parks that i happen to be the superintendent of has now become after 40 years the second most visited national park in our country. we get 14 million people a year that come to our parks. it has spectacular coastline, includes muir wood, alcatraz, we get to tell the stories, stories about essentially wha

to be prepared. we try to educate them in respect that we say we'll provide the offense, you provide the defense. we talk to them about hardening their structures in a defensive measure against wild land fires. a lot of it is public education, survivability, building standards, but predominately our focus is putting the onus on the land owner, putting the onus on the private property owner, we will attempt to protect your home but the days of staying and defending your home and killing our fire fighters are done. we will not stand and defend a house that has not been prepared by a land owner and die for it. we don't do that any more. that's one of our doctrinal changes and we set forth some new guidelines with that. >> thank you. >> question, mr. secretary. >> in a large scale disaster relief, where the military is called in to assist the civilian components there is an obvious issue of how you get the command and control and in particular what telecommunications is used to support that command and control. your exercising together is very critical, i think, to working out command and cont
of defense, we talk about the post office and prepayments being made. there is one truism on both, o s the taxpayer is ultimately on the hook. yes. so it is not an issue is this just a quasi-government organization, both dod and you need prepayments. we're ultimately on the hook the taxpayer is. what concerns me in a time, admitted, mr. chairman your low liquidity. you're not really sure you can get down as low as two days later this year, at a time in which the discussions have been made and i have read about the board of governors and your role. you do believe you have a fiduciary duty in your role to the postal service and in your role, correct? >> mr. chairman, representative, yes. >> that means there's a trust. there's a trust with you and the board of governors not just strictly you but i believe with the postmaster general and others in this situation. what i keep hearing is, well we thought of and we're looking at that. we have a five-year plan that was many years ago. we have discussions that we want to do. we're exploring ideas. these are direct quotes from today, exploring h
homeland defense but as the sequestration starts to move downstream, we start to see more and more negative impacts on the readiness of our force. so what it means to air combat command is that the forces that are back here that are going to be training to get ready to come and relieve the ones that are on station will not have adequate flying hours, will not have adequate training, potentially not have it, and that's kind of the world that we're in right now. >> ok. i think it is important. many of us were very pleased when we did the defense appropriations bill to carry forth year end to replace the c.r., but even with that, the notion that a third of our air combat units are standing down from now to year end is something that should cause us some significant anxiety. i know it worries me. you talk a little bit and there were also some information in your testimony about the combined counterprovocation plan which is a south korea-led u.s. supported contingency plan for challenges in the region and i know that was just signed in the last couple of weeks. could you share a little bit more

know, when barack obama first came into office, we gave away a lot of missile defense scheduled to go into europe because we wanted to please the russians. we wanted to hit the reset button and look where that's gotten it. it's gotten us nothing except we've delayed protections for ourselves and our allies. we have to do what's best for our defense and our allies' defense and do what ronald reagan said. we should have peace through strength, not peace through weakness. peace through strength. lou: the north koreans have at least two missiles for launch, estimated to be, by all counts, and of course, you're far better briefed on this than the people but by all accounts a range of at least 2600 miles. how concerned are you that they will, indeed, be launched and what should be the u.s. response? >> well, fortunately, we do have some good theater missile defenses in place today, missile destroyers that we already had and we beefed that up. japanese had some with our help and they're deploying that and we have some inter continental ballistic missile interceptors, lou, in both california

that the department of the defense to move forward in a different mode as far as that seamless transition between dod ask the v.a. that where the concern i have. i know we have a new secretary of dod. my question to you is, have you had any recent discussions with the new secretary of the department of defense, and are they willing to move forward with that seamless transition, i.e., are they willing to accept the system vista that v.a. owns and operates. the dod system is actually -- they purchased that system -- you you'll have to correct me -- so is dod willing to accept the vista system? and if so, how soon? >> thank you, congressman michaud. the v.a. decided the vista is our core system and we are moving forward on the ihr and still focused on the usual operating capability of 2014. and as you might expect this has been a topic of discussion with the new secretary of defense, secretary hagel. he is getting into the discussion. it is a complex one, and he wants to be sure he is structured correctly. he and i have discussed this as recently as yesterday. i believe we're on the same path here, and
their defenses up right now. stand by for reports from the region. >> new reports this morning, north korea moving missiles closer to its east coast. >> fox news alert on new evidence that north korea could test a missile. >> a missile lunch could come at any time and without warning. >> puts sorj korea at striking range, japan, and guam. >> all that is one step removed from this headline, nuclear war, unavoidable. >> the thing that tipped this discussion, if you can add, over, the story here to broaden more weight was this item. poent pent gone, north korea could launch nuclear missile. the intelligence agency concluded that north korea was capable launching a miss well a nuclear warhead, albeit a reliable one. >> i'm not an expert but i loved through the iraq war. when people start talking about threats and war, everybody needs to double the amount of skepticism and the left of critical rigor to the matter. so what exactly is the deal with this ominous sounding defense intelligence agency report? the precise revelation, this assessment by the d.a. was disclosed by a congressman named doug
a missile defense systems on guam, japan, and on warships in the south china sea. kerry suggested if north korea steps back from the brink, the u.s. would reconsider those missile defenses. did you discuss with them also the possibility that some of the recent deployments of anti-missile defenses might be redeployed or stood down in pyongyang were to change its behavior? >> if the threat disappears, ie north korea denuclearizes, the same imperative does not exist at that point in time for us to have to have that kind of robust forward-leaning posture of defense. >> reporter: despite today's promises, experts doubt that china will really pressure north korea. its neighbor and close ally, even as it grows increasingly frustrated with kim jong-un's threats. >> they don't want to see north korea collapse. for this reason, they'll push him a little bit, but won't push the north koreans hard enough in a way that would help to reach a denuclearization outcome. >> reporter: u.s. officials say that china is already tightening its purse strings regarding north korea, but clearly not enough to get ki
.s. japan alliance has never been stronger than today. the u.s. is fully committed to the defense of japan. >> jamie: folks, this is really important stuff. greg palkot is streaming live from seoul, south korea, 30-miles from the border where everything may be going on now. what is the latest? >> as you explain, secretary of state kerry in the region, high stakes diplomatic tour to deal with that north korea threat. the looming missile launch. he finished a meeting with the japanese foreign minister and he has offered a possible peaceful resolution to the crisis. he is talking about negotiations. but at the same time, he is saying that north korea has to commit to give up the nuke. something they have not been willing to do. he also says that the u.s. stands redty to defend not just itself, but all its allies in the region. and he has this stern warning for pyongyang. take a listen. >> the north has to understand, and i believe must by now, that the threats and the provocations are only going to isolate it further. and impoverish its people even further. >> now just in the past, a few hour
missile, and several short-range missiles. defense analysts are trying to understand where all of this is headed. akimoto has been tracking the situation for the royal united services institute for defense and security studies, it's a british think tank. >> north korean commanders are mobilizing their troops. they want to respond to a joint military exercise by u.s. and south korean forces. with such tensions, north korean soldiers can't afford to be taking part in military parade. that said, there is little possibility of renewed fighting between the two koreas. u.s. and south korean commanders state their exercise to train their troops in joint operations. and to put on show of strength. leaders in pyongyang are simply responding to that. these are psych local tacticloi. we see little sign that ground troops are preparing for war. no troops have moved south. and we have no reports of anything unusual happening in pyongyang. military tensions always risk causing something unpredictable. a nervous front-line soldier could fire shot by mistake, prompting exchange of gunfire and
book was really an effort to take the temperature of public defense across the country and i visited a lot of public defenders offices, watched a lot of trials and discovered that there was a crisis in the court's that probably all of you are well aware of and really tried to dig in and find out what was going on and where all these problems were arising that we didn't have equal justice 50 years after gideon. what i would like to do is read a little section of the book first and talk for a few minutes and read a brief section. so, the section i'm going to read is in the conclusion because it's about public defenders in a conference i went to with public defenders since i thought there were probably quite a few of you in the audience, you might find it musing. i don't know. the national defenders association opened the conference in washington dc in 2011 addressed the crowd of 300 public defenders with a room with space for many more. does society demonize you? of course. do they suggest you are working for the wrong people? of course they do do they suggest you are work for thugs
move to drop their nuclear program. members of north korea's national defense commission said the proposal was unacceptable. they called on the security counsel to retract economic penalties imposed after the country's latest missile launch and nuclear tests and demanded that u.s. and south korean commanders suspend military exercises currently under way in the south. the commission members also said the military forces and the people of north korea are closely watching what steps the u.s. and its followers will take. the remark suggests that there is still room for dialogue with the u.s. and south korea. >>> south korea's foreign minister is playing go between in an effort to keep an annual summit with japan and china on the calendar. yun byung-se in seoul says he will also raise the north korea issue. officials have been preparing to host the summit in late may. a diplomatic source saying young is expected to meet the other foreign ministers. the source says yung will try to convince the two ministers to proceed with the talks as planned. they believe it's too early to hold

korea and a conversation with michele flournoy a former senior defense department official about where the crisis in north korea stands. >> my worry is on the north korean side you have kim jung-un who is a very young inexperienced leader, the question is will he know when to stop? his father, hi grandfather knew up to... how to walk up to the line but stop short of war. the question is will he know how to do this or will he miscalculate because if he goes up the escalation ladder because of the geography, because of the tens of thousands of artillery aimed at seoul, the first hour of a full-out conflict would be very deadly for both sides. you would be very quickly into a full-scale war. that's the real concern. 's miscalcation. >> crliewe conclude this evening with a look at the results of the venezuelan election with who hey cast need a, greg grandin and nikolas kozloff. >> i think his charisma was off the charts. that's not a bad thing. i think in terms of the 20th century of last inamerican history, the 21st century maybe juan per own maybe a few leaders here and there but i think

. >> ray of sunshine from dan. wow. what a switch here. >> defensive issues that have been doing a lot of heavy issues. if you think about some of the best performing sectors this year, you have health care up 20% year to date versus the s&p that's up 11.5%. you have consumer staples. up about 17%. you have utilities. these are some of the most defensive names. why are people going for them? obviously yield. there's no yield anywhere on the planet. to me, if you are running there, it just went parabolic. that makes me nervous. it should make investors nervous. >> i'm going to throw out what technical analyst louise rumana said. that is, you take a look at some of the charts for some of the names in health care, they have made things not as tenuous as you might think. you see a big streamline up, but they have been basing for two years. >> that is exactly it. they've been basically since the lows. they have a nice technical set up here. they went parabolic. you know what it reminds me of? apple from the 2009 lows. the way it worked up. it was defensive, defensive, defensive. then last y
